    look at this vid


    she's doing no advertising, yet in her info sidebar she thinks she needs to mention a ftc disclaimer...

    this is before the guidelines are even put into place... is this what we're going towards now? a bunch of disclaimers from people that would usually be our target market making everything the little affiliate puts out look like spam and making everything anyone with the budget to do the crime and the dodge the ftc fine puts out look legit?

    I dont know about you all but the social reaction to these ftc guidelines and the surfacing of blackhat marketing to the public by making ALL speech on the internet seem like a form of advertising while criminalizing the average joe blogger doesn't really seem like its about protecting consumers, no it seems to me like its the same as our drug policies where we cripple the market and then end up with a plant becoming a product people lose their lives over, while the criminals get rich.
